Learn more about Wakatere Boating Club

friendship   life skills   resilience   competition   adventure

Wakatere is a family sailing club on the shores of Narrow Neck Beach, Devonport, Auckland NZ.

Members sail a range of centreboard dinghy and foiling classes and we run entry-level learn to sail courses for all ages with boats provided. 

With club racing on Sunday afternoons and coaching throughout the week, we know that sailing is only one part of the Club’s experience; the inherent benefits can be equally important - building friendships, learning life skills and developing resilience through competition and adventure.  

Join the crew!
